As much as I love Gerês for its raw natural beauty there is, like I mentioned before, a lot of human presence. Some places are spots everyone knows about and can become crowded in the Summer months.
One such place is the Albufeira da Caniçada, which offers the possibility of water sports, river beaches or just plain relaxation enjoying all the different hues of green and blue.
The other place is a well known sightseeing spot, the Miradouro da Pedra Bela. From there you have an amazing view of the Albufeira and of the mountains around you.
